 SCSI CD-ROM on UNIX install problem

I have a problem with "Interactive Unix System V/386 Release 3.2".

I know this is a LINUX group, but I couldn't find a more appropriate one.

I am trying to install a 32x speed SCSI CD-ROM drive (Toshiba XM 6201 B)
onto an Adaptec AHA 1740/42A SCSI system.

My computer is a Compaq Deskpro 66m (4/86 66MHz).

After booting SCSI recognizes the device OK. But my Unix (see above) doesnt
know anything about it.

I tried to use "mount", but no success (I probably didnt do it right).

There was no driver disk to the CD-ROM drive.

How do I install it properly ?

What do I need ?

Help please !!

Remove "-nospam" from my address to reply.

 SCSI CD-ROM on UNIX install problem
In Article <01bdb89e$ce2f6cc0$8aa5a8c1@default>, through puissant locution, "Shoumo Roy" <> soliloquized:

You need:

a) a generic SCSI driver (don't have it? you're toast)
b) a generic CDROM driver (don't have it? you're toast)
c) kernel support for mounting iso9660 file system
   (don't have it? you're toast)

BTW, the "After booting SCSI recognizes the device OK" just says that on
init, the drive reponded with it's ID data... so it's hooked up, that's
all that says. The critical is (c) if you don't have it... good luck.

[obvious question]
Why not instal Linux on the machine? Got any propriaritary software
you're running that you can't recompile? Also, do you know if the OS
supports CD-ROMs at all? Most include a generic SCSI driver but not all.

[dig dig dig... you DO know about, right?]

Reading the Release 3.2, Version 4.0 release FAQ, I'm not "too" optimistic

Actually, the FAQ sent the "1980's Unix System From Company XX" shivers
down my back... have a read. Nothing about CD-ROMs...
